COVID-19: Parking enforcement to resume for NHS and health & social care workers

General

The Government backed NHS and health & social care parking pass concession is due to end on Monday 21 June.

The concession was introduced at the start of the pandemic to support key workers in carrying out their duties. In line with guidance issued by the Government and other local authorities, the concession will no longer be accepted in North East Lincolnshire and normal parking restrictions will apply.  

Following this change, there will be a full re-instatement for civil enforcement activity in the borough.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “This parking concession was always a temporary measure and in line with national guidance and other local authorities, we are now ending the concession in North East Lincolnshire.

“As a local authority, we have a duty to ensure that the roads keep moving and parking is open and available for use. It is essential our road network is available for all.

“We appreciate the impact this will have on our local NHS and health & social care workforce and in an effort to avoid them receiving a penalty charge notice, our civil enforcement officers will be issuing warning notices on vehicles displaying the pass for two weeks after Monday 21 June as they adjust to the parking changes.”

To support the transition from Monday 21 June, warning slips will be placed on vehicles displaying the concession for up to two weeks after enforcement resumes. From Monday 5 July, vehicles continuing to display the parking concession pass will risk receiving a penalty charge notice.

Civil enforcement is managed by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE.
